On the back of his fine performances in the Test series, in which he took 20 wickets in two matches, Dale Steyn has been called up to South Africa's one-day international squad for the matches against New Zealand.

South Africa play one Twenty20 International followed by three one-day internationals and replaces Justin Kemp from the squad which beat Pakistan last month.
"Dale gives us an exciting extra option as a wicket-taking bowler," selection chief Joubert Strydom was quoted as saying in a Cricket South Africa media release on Tuesday.
Herschelle Gibbs, who injured a knee in the second Test, is a doubt for the Twenty20, with Morne Van Wyk on standby.
South Africa comfortably won both Tests to seal a 2-0 victory.
